Honey, come and get me,
Caress me, love, and pet me,
I want to be your little turtle dove;
I'm just wild to marry
Some Tom, Dick or Harry,
'Cause I gotta have someone to love.

I'd give up all my money
If someone would call me honey,
To a good man my my heart I'd love to lose,
So don't be hesitating
And keep me here a-waiting,
Because I've got those ever-lovin' blues!

Honey, baby, please come and get me now,
I ain't got nobody at all.
What you don't know 'bout loving I will show you how,
Don't think I'm tired and sore,
I 've been praying, oh Lord, please send me a man,
One who will never change his view,
I'll tease him, squeeze him, you can bet I'll please him,
'Cause I've got those ever-lovin' blues!

Honey, baby, please come and get me now,
I ain't got nobody at all.
What you don't know 'bout loving I will show you how,
Don't think I'm tired and sore,
I 've been prayin', oh Lord, please send me a man,
One who will never change his view,
I'll tease him, squeeze him, you can bet I'll please him,
'Cause I've got those ever-lovin' blues!
